The other islands of the group present facts bearing on these subjects, but the writer's knowledge of them is too imperfect for…

The abundant glassy rinds and chilled contacts of submarine extrusions and intrusions provide the most reliable indicators of primary magmatic compositions of deep-sea igneous rocks. They are

Taxonomic revision of the Mecyclothorax beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) of Oahu: epithets as epitaphs for an endangered fauna?

These results are consistent with the occurrence of rampant, unfixed infraspecific genitalic variation early in an island radiation, with subsequent fixation of divergent genitalic characters occurring as speciation proceeds.
